Miami Herald Article about Timeshare Resale Scams (TUG gets a mention)

http://www.miamiherald.com/2010/03/2...link=email_msg

Spoke with this reporter for a good bit, glad she did the article!

Quote:
The number of complaints in 2009 -- some 2,719 -- is more than double the number filed in 2008.

That has led Florida, along with several other states, to declare war on the timeshare resale industry. The Florida attorney general's office said it is investigating 17 companies, has sued three others and reached settlements with seven more for about $1.6 million in customer refunds. The office expects to investigate more companies this year.
First time I've actually seen an actual number of complaints!
